A bitterly cold day – not the kind of day for hanging around. The most interesting birds were Scaup near the dam at Chew. I missed a real chance here as I saw later on the Avon Bird Blog that there was a Common Scoter amongst them – but not in my photo. I should have spent more time talking to the other birders at the lake. Black Redstart ? in the tree near the dam ( 2nd photo from the end) and Swans getting ready for St Valentine’s Day.
